Toilet Paper Tube Shamrock

Because you’ve got to give the kids something to do while you drink green beer, check out this super-cute toilet paper tube shamrock craft from Pretty Prudent. I like that it does double-duty–it’s an excellent kid craft, but it looks hella cool when an adult does it, too. It’s fun for everyone!

Need a little more non-beer green for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration? Here are more eco-friendly shamrock crafts to keep you festive:
